Lee Daniels is really trying to do the [email protected] thing while he’s over at FOX!
During the network’s Television Critics Association panel on Thursday, the Empire co-creator/director revealed that he wants to do a spin-off the wildly popular drama. “There is going to be a spinoff from Empire, without question,” Daniels told the crowd. “I think there is so much ripe story. We’ve talked about it in the room already about Cookie’s family, what makes her her, Lucious’ family, what makes them them, that in itself is fascinating to me and stuff that I can get to.” Could you imagine a Cookie Lyon spin-off?! Yes, gawd!
And Daniels isn’t stopping there — The stellar director promises another hit music drama on FOX with Star. The show will center around three girls who come together to start a singing group in Atlanta (TLC-ish???). The network has already ordered the drama that will detail the group’s rise top the top.
Are you excited for Lee Daniels has down the pipeline?
